The Rainy Lake Conservancy is actively involved in conservation efforts in Northwestern Ontario.

The Conservancy's primary areas of focus are Rainy Lake and its watershed.

Members gather water samples for water quality testing, educate property owners and residents on good shoreline practices, and sponsor biodiversity inventories.

The Rainy Lake Conservancy works with property owners, governments and local communities, encouraging the conservation of land through a variety of land protection options, including donations of land and conservation easements on private properties.


Since the early 1900s, Canadians and Americans have worked together to preserve Rainy Lake’s natural beauty, clean water, abundant plant and wildlife and its rich history (aboriginal, voyageurs, explorers).

Rainy Lake is a rare and precious place in a world where forests and clean lakes are rapidly disappearing.

The Rainy Lake Conservancy proudly carries on the tradition of wilderness preservation into the 21st century. (Learn More)

Project Update, September 2015
The following statement was recently provided by the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry:

"The Applicant of Record (AoR) has been returned to the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry. The proponent has stepped away. Gemini is no longer pursuing the site(s), and we have accepted their return of the AoR. There is no longer an AoR on any of the three sites." The three sites referred to are Myrtle Falls, High Falls, and Hay Rapids. The High Falls site was to be the first development.

We will provide more information here as it becomes available to us.
